Thursday, January 3, 2013 Share on Facebook RSS Feeds
Journeyman Stud stallions Circular Quay and Cowtown Cat wrapped up 2012 ranked first and second, respectively, on Florida's First Crop Sire list. Circular Quay's runners racked up $481,234 in earnings, while Cowtown Cat's juveniles netted $363,594.

Cowtown Cat, however, was Florida's most prolific sire of 2-year-old winners, with 14, while Circular Quay was second on the list with an even 10 juvenile maiden-breakers.

Circular Quay's leading money-earner was the filly Verso a Verso, who proved best in the $300,000 Florida Stallion My Dear Girl S. in October, then came back the next month with a strong second in the $100,000 John Franks Juvenile Fillies Turf S., both at Calder.

Cowtown Cat's lengthy list of winners showed their versatility by graduating at 10 different tracks, including One Firm Cat, a Santa Anita Park maiden special weight winner who went on to finish second in the $107,995 Barretts Juvenile S.

Both Circular Quay and Cowtown Cat will stand the 2013 season at Journeyman for $4,000 LFS&N.
